of Havre, MT
Nominated by: Kali Jean Tuckerman
Sherri moved back to Havre 2 years ago and stepped right into many roles: Service Unit Manager, Registrar, Day Camp Director and any other roles that needed to be filled. She has taken it upon herself to make sure that the GS House in Havre is here to stay! She has secured donations for a stove, a fridge and paint on the outside. She has cleaned the scout house up very well and has set in place a system for keeping it clean. She even has a sign outside the house with her phone number that proclaims that Girl Scout Cookies are for sale and that people can call her to find them.
Most recently, Sherri was instrumental in helping council staff bring a “Blast from the Past” overnighter to Havre in celebration of Girl Scout’s 100 Year Anniversary. As we were struggling to figure out what to do for food, shuttles and where to do the Sing-a-long, we found out that we suddenly had Taco John’s taco cart, donations from numerous local businesses including IGA and Coca-Cola, and were on to do a Sing-a-long at the mall prior to the Boy Scouts’ pinewood derby race! Sherri worked tirelessly to help us make the celebration a successful event for more than 75 girls. Also at the last minute she volunteered to make more than 300 cookies for the participants.
Her generous, energetic spirit is infectious, and she is a fabulous volunteer and leader. We are lucky to have her!
